Love Poem: Robin, Rook, Swan and Dove

Written by: Jack Horne

Robin, Rook, Swan and Dove

A robin its breast as red as cherries

The rook in mourning dress,
Its nest in the graveyard tree,
Cawing in sympathy to tears of distress,
Looking down sadly on misery,
Hoping its young do not see.

The long necked swan swims,
So elegant on water,
Its beauty supreme;
On land it looks ungainly:
A beauty queen in jack boots.

No sacrifice, the dove coos love 
Snowy body soaring heavenwards.
